The Marine and Offshore Engineering (M&OE) industry has been a key pillar of Singapore’s economy since its early days of industrialisation. The industry contributed 2% to Singapore’s GDP in 2014 and continues to provide good jobs for many Singaporeans. Despite uncertainties in the global economic environment, the long-term fundamentals for the industry remain solid. Growth in the M&OE industry will be supported by expected increases in offshore exploration as well as production spending by oil & gas companies.
Today, Singapore is one of the world’s premier ship repair and conversion hubs. We are a global leader in the offshore market, accounting for more than half of global jackup orders by value, and about two-thirds of the global floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel conversion market. The M&OE industry comprises almost 1,200 companies, ranging from small and medium enterprises to large multinational corporations. These companies offer a wide range of attractive employment opportunities for about 25,000 locals. From manufacturing to R&D, there are pathways tailored for craftsmen, technicians and engineers.
Singapore’s ability to engineer and deliver highly complex M&OE products requires a talented local workforce that continually seeks to improve and upgrade amidst rapidly evolving business and technological trends.
